Default Router collet extentions??????

Hi everyone,
I know I am asking all the same old questions, but I am a newbie.
Please be gentle
I am wondering if anyone can advise on good options for collet extentions, am looking at the Axminster jobbie but not sure.
Would appreciate some advice

Hi Paul,

Try Amazon UK, there is a good selection of them on the USA site.

Best one I've come across is made by Axminster Power Tool in the UK. These are very well made and have the advantage of using engineering-style ER20 precision collets which means less tool run-out and vibration. Not the cheapest, but then you get what you pay for IMHO

Regards

Sorry Paul,

I didn't read your post properly. (A bad habit of mine)

I have never used one, but I would thnk that Trend wouldn't put out an inferior product.

Hi Paul

You can get one from MLCS or both of them at the right price and they come with the tools. (wrenches, that's a big deal if you want to use one) and yes MLCS ships to the UK..that's both of the for about 50.oo us dollars with the tools for both of them.
The guy in the UK gets 50.oo for just one of them without the tools to use them..(tools) I'm a free guy, if you can get it free that's for me..

See the review from guys that know..on the same web page.

MLCS Router Collet Extension and Review

Just a note ++when I got my sets I order a extra sets of wrenches and I got a call from MLCS asking me if I knew you get a set of wrenches with them for free, "do you still the extra set ? ",,,MLCS will go the extra mile when you order items from them..

Hi Paul

If you import from the USA the item is normally subject to both duty (circa 5.5%, that's what I paid on my last import) and VAT (20%). It might also attract a handling charge from the courier firm. You may or may not get charged the duty/VAT. It really is a lottery. even on goods marked "present" or "trade sample" (Customs are wise to those). On that basis $50 at $1.80/£1 works out at just over £35. Plus, of course, the obligatory currency exchange charge the credit card firm will make

Regards

Phil
